    Several other similar threads - you might search for "outlook" to try to find them. Many of us use Gmail. Some recommend Thunderbird. I can't recall anything else being recommended.

    Thunderbird is good

    I used to use Eudora and I've tried Pegasus Mail

    but I like Thunderbird the best.

    I think the power of Google Apps with Gmail is very underrated. I've been running many email accounts out of one Domain hosted Gmail account. It too is free.

    I dislike the idea of using my computer as a landfill which the Outlook type programs tend to do.

    Plus, Google Apps has so many other helping solutions that can be used to help an affiliate marketer.

    Here is the link for the free version if you are at all interested: http://www.google.com/apps/intl/en/group/index.html

    I have Thunderbird on 3 computers here and love it. Has a calendar with alerts and all that good stuff. The latest version has an improved search to let you find your messages later on.

    The gmail solution will work, but how much more can we become dependent on Google. I use them for everything, but am starting to draw the line.

    The nice thing about a web-based email, like gmail or yahoo, is that you don't have to worry about your PC hard drive failing, which if you're like most people and don't back up regularly, would mean a loss of your mail, along with other data.

    Well, actually, there's another nice thing. You can access it from more than one computer.

    There is no way I would not use web-based email. Personally I use web-based with disposable addresses that all return mail to the main account. I can trash a disposable that is getting spammed to death while keeping my main account.

    Google Apps for server based email addresses and Eudora to store locally. I explained my set up quite thoroughly in another thread recently, like Michael said, search for Outlook or search here for Eudora.

    I don't say this sarcastically -- Is Eudora still in existence and still working??

    I honestly thought Eudora had died. I know at one point a couple of years ago the people developing Thunderbird bought out Eudora with great plans. I saw some beta of their new Eudora a couple of years ago but didn't know that anything had come of it.

    Do you have any links to find a current version of Eudora? Is Eudora free now?

    Thanks for any info.

    Eudora.com - it's being developed as open source now.

    I still use Eudora for my personal emails. I love it for email. For business I use Chaos Intellect because it has a full featured contact management system. The contact management system is great, the email is very good but with some bugs from time to time.

    Yup, it is still available and is now free. I have several copies installed, I have used them individually to manage client emails before Google Apps appeared and got better. I currently use 2 installs, one for personal email and one for client emails, so they are separate. I can open any of the older installs if I ever need to access something from them.

    As long as you install in separate directories you can run multiple, I just rename the desktop shortcuts.

    With all the mail running through the Google Apps mail server, all incoming and outgoing mail gets stored both locally and in G. So it works as email content management because Vinny, Liz and I can all log in and see what emails are answered or outstanding. It's all web accessible.

    I am too conditioned to my Eudora folders and filters and I can't just use web based mail efficiently because I would have to log into xx number of email accounts, and the inboxes are all full of everything, even if it's tagged. I'm a creature of habit, habits that have extended since Eudora was first on the scene. But I love having the email available on the web, in addition to my nice, neat folders on my computer.

    If I hadn't been on the internet forever with multiple emails for multiple purposes from the very beginning, I may do things differently.

    It works fine with Windows 7 too.

    I loved Eudora, but then it started locking up all the time, but that was like 5 years ago.

    That's why I break it down Which is something you can do with it that you can't do with Outlook. I can't have a "personal" version and a "client" version. I tried Thunderbird at some point a few years ago and it didn't do folders like I am used to.

    My system *isn't* for everyone, it's just how I do it.

    ok, I have used Thunderbird for 3 days and I think it a good option but the one thing that may make me stop using it is that it marks messages as being read. I found a way to delay it being marked read for about 16 min or so but after that it automaticly get marked as read.

    So do any Thunderbird users know of a way so that an email does not get marked as read until I have opened/read the email. Please note I have preview plan turned off.

    Try going to Options/Advanced/Reading&Display:

    Mine is set with a check in Automatically mark messages as read and a check on "Immediately on display"

    See if we are the same on that as I don't have your problem.

    Only when I click on the email does it show read. I do run with the preview pane open. Normally I'm set to view messages as Plain Text, but when I'm heavy into affiliate related emails I'll set to Original HTML. Images are set to not load automatically. Feel free to PM me if you need any other details that all might not be interested in.
